The nationally recognized Capital Fellows Programs administered by the Center for California Studies at California State University, Sacramento, announces the availability of applications for the Capital Fellows Programs: California Senate Fellows; Executive Fellowship Program; Jesse M. Unruh Assembly Fellowship Program; and the Judicial Administration Fellowship Program.
These fellowships offer the unique opportunity to work for 10 to 11 months as a full-time paid staff member in the California State Assembly, California State Senate, California Executive Branch or the California Judiciary. Fellows participate in policymaking, program development and implementation and gain first-hand experience in the governance and leadership of California.
Some 2,000 alumni have participated in the Capital Fellows Programs, and the ranks of former fellows include judges; members of the United States Congress and the State Legislature; state and local government officials; corporate executives; community and non-profit leaders; and university professors, administration and staff.
